obama's road show policy push hits atlanta today and we'll take a deep dive into the options and odds of the president having to fall back on executive actions, because his policies won't go anywhere in congress. >>> and the republican ruckus over karl rove's conservative counter-strategy is reaching a bit of a fever pitch. but is the core of this fight really about the messengers or the message itself? >> good morning from washington and happy valentine's day. it's thursday, february 14th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. it may be valentine's day, but not a lot of love for chuck hagel. next week a nato meeting of defense ministers is scheduled in brussels. but given the way chuck hagel's nomination is going, it's possible the u.s. may not have a new defense secretary there or leon panetta may be forced to go there steed. yesterday, the senate began the odd procedural dance that is required for cloture, the process for ending senate debate. >> nomination, department of defense, charles timothy hagel of nebraska, to b

[ whistle blowing ] where do you hear that beat? campbell's healthy request soup lets you hear it... in your heart. [ basketball bouncing ] heart healthy. great taste. mmm... [ male announcer ] sounds good. it's amazing what soup can do. >>> well, my good friend new jersey senator frank lautenberg says he's going to retire next year and not seek a sixth term. and that opens the door for cory booker to run f
city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> eric: president obama delivered his fifth "state of the union." the grand entrance by the rockstar in chief, bipartisan bowing and patting each other on the back as they barrel toward armageddon was a spectacle. the president thinks he knows what is best for us. i think he sees himself as a father figure, in a cool way. like this guy. >> i'm a cool dad. that is my bang. >> ♪ we're all in this together ♪ ♪ yes, we are ♪ we're all stars ♪ of something you know it >> eric: sorry, mr. president, that is not how i see it, sir. i can see it like chick bike riding girlie arm dad that whines and nags and whines and nags. >> so let's be clear. common sense reform. minimum wage and our fair share. manufacturered crisis. >> gun violence. >> climate change. immigration reform. >> bob, haven't the american people heard this song enough played over and over and over again? >> bob: what happened to you? did you take a big hit of red bull or something? nose spray. that is right. for the last two months you have been a quiet, more self-assuming eric bo
here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continues to multiply surrounding what happened last september 11. both in libya and back here in washington. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge has an update. >> the president's pick to lead the c.i.a. counterterrorism advisor john brennan faces new and up comfortable obstacles about the benghazi terrorist attack and the administration handling of the suspect al-harzi. this letter pushes them to explain disparity between his sworn testimony and that of former secretary of state hillary clinton. >> they insisted that the tunisia authorities did not have the evidence to keep him in custody. >> tunisias did not
with the device and consent language of the conversation. the language says that president obama gets to pick his team exempt in extraordinary circumstances. and the extraordinary circumstances are not met here. john mccain said that chuck hagel would be a great member of cabinet. he spoke of chuck hagel as a tremendous secretary of state. >> political betrayal is a worse sin than being a member of the opposing party, so you have john mccain in the hearing really going after chuck hagel, especially after iraq and the sunshine. but then you have a committee hearing and the new senator from texas, cruz, goes after chuck hagel where then john mccain defends him. it's baffling, it's like we're in a sort of upside down tonka toy world. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. >> senator hagel is an honorable man, he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> john mccain or roy blount are critical here if they don'
'm tempted to describe president obama's spending and tax ideas as small ball, but they're worse than that. they represent a conscious decision to neglect some of the most pressing issues that confront our country. you might even say it's a dereliction of duty in the battle to save america. last week, the congressional budget office projected that our gross national debt will increase from $16 trillion in 2012 to $26 trillion in 2023. now, that may seem like a long way off, but just since president obama has been president, the national debt's gone up by 55%, just in the last four years. but if you project that forward to 2023 when some of these young men and women who are working here as pages will be looking at entering the work force and looking at their futures, all they will see ahead of them is debt and a reduced standard of living. this is what lies ahead for all of us unless we embrace real spending cuts and unless we deal with the unfunded liabilities of medicare and social security. now, president obama has a secret strategy for getting our debt under control, we'd all love to he
think a lot of frustration should go back to the obama administration. it was the obama administration insist we have sequester if the debt super-committee failed to reach an agreement and they failed to reach an agreement. i remember very specifically at one of the presidential debates president obama told governor romney sequestration is not going to happen. two weeks away and looks like it will happen. it will be devastating for the military. we're talking about curtailed military operations around the globe. reduced funding for mint nance and training. 800,000 dod citizens are looking for furlough or forced time without pay. this will be devastating and we're just getting started with sequestration. bill: the last point you just made a lot of people haven't talked about. 800,000 people coput on furlough for minimum of 22 days, three weeks. back to what panetta saying there, i look for members to work to us and can't sit here and complain. he used a different word. i use complain the is he talking about republicans or democrats as well? >> he is talking about both democrats and repu
. then president obama discusses job creation. and new guidelines on cyber security. we'll get to jack lew's confirmation in a moment. first the cbo director douglas elmendorf testimony. he warned of the sequester could cost 750,000 jobs. >> could you tell me in terms of the negative economic impact of the sequester, the .6%, what does that translate in point of lost jobs? >> our estimate is that the sequester alone would reduce gdp growth this year by zero point six percentage points. it would lower that gdp at the end of the year. we think that would reduce by about 750,000 jobs. >> 750,000 jobs between now and the end of 2013, right? >> right. >> that is a whole lot of jobs. we should be working overtime to prevent that kind of job loss. if you were to replace the deficit reduction through that austerity program, the cuts to the sequester with a plan that accomplishes the same amount of deficit reduction spread over the 10 year period, you would not have that hit on jobs? >> right. >> our analysis, the republican leader, mr. cantor had it right last september when he said that if we all

confidence that the obama administration will enforce any immigration law in the future shep? >> shepard: isn't there immigration bill deadline set for august? >> yeah, it is set for august. keep in mind that the president has said that they need to move quickly on this thing. if they do not meet that august deadline. or at least try to get something achieved before the august recess. he is going to take this thing into his own hands. but, keep in mind that conservative republicans also have their own ideas. they are incensed. they are discussed with the fact disgusted with the fact that border nonexistent in this administration. they is is a poison pill of their own. shep, that's called the filibuster. back to you. >> shepard: doug mckelway live on capitol hill. thank you. a crane has toppled on to a church filled with dozens of school children. that tops our news across america. virginia. as crews worked on the church roof, the truck attached to the crane's arm suddenly tipped over. two workers in the construction bucket slightly hurt when it landed on the roof. officials safely evacuated a
